Psychologist, founder of the Global Consciousness Project
Ultimately, indications of a global consciousness motivate us to ask deeper questions about our relations to the world and each other. The experimental results show that subtle linkages may connect widely separated people.
Subtle structuring of random data by human engagement and emotion broadens our view of what consciousness means. It implies that our attention matters in a way we may not have imagined possible, and that cooperative intent can have subtle but real consequences. This is cause for reflection on our responsibilities in an increasingly connected world. Our future holds challenges of planetary scope that will demand both scientific clarity and intentional cooperation.
